So we are talking about anywhere to around 8hrs of the floors in some of these restaurants acting as a buffet line for rodents and insects. With even normal cleaning conditions, food still falls behind hard to reach areas, and restaurant owners and employees, cannot always stop and move around equipment, to cleanup these areas.

A great skill to have is the talent of cooking, and one of the great businesses to come across is the food truck business. If you are good at cooking, its something serious to look at. It has been around for years and is not going anywhere. Doing service all around the country we run into food trucks. We have even run into food trucks with a restaurant setup or more appropriately, you can call it a open concession setup outside. Ive seen it setup where its multiple food trucks lined up in a half circle, acting as a food court. This was one of the more genius ideas that I have come across. Most food truck owners have a talent for cooking, and find way to the capital needed for the opening of a food truck, and go straight into business.

These days the restaurant industry is a wide open business. In my opinion this is the best time to enter the business with the most in options in generating income.
